Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
We address the needs of a sub population of young dogs in a state that is over populated due to inconsistent spaying and neutering. In the Southeast United States, there is a surplus of puppies and it is not uncommon for entire puppy litters to be destroyed. The shelters in Georgia are often crowded due to dog overpopulation as well as owner surrenders, and as a result, the euthanasia rate is high.
Puppies are something we do not have a surplus of in Seattle. Because we generally adhere to spay and neuter laws, there are less accidental litters. Therefore, a family that wants a rescue puppy has a challenge on their hands. Some give up the quest and ultimately turn to breeders. Georgia Peaches Puppy Rescue aims to give homeless puppies that have been on death row, are in high kill shelters, or are in overcrowded rescues a chance to get adopted in the dog-loving Pacific Northwest. And in turn, these Georgia Peach puppies give locals here in Seattle the option to bypass a breeder and make a choice to support puppy rescue.
We believe that a "Georgia Peach" puppy really stands for a disadvantaged puppy from anywhere in the world that is in need of rescue.
Steps for adoption through Georgia Peaches:
1. Contact Georgia Peaches to share interest and submit application.
2. The adoption team will review your application and get back to you within 3 days for the next steps.
3. Phone interview with the applicant.
4. Meet and greet, to ensure a good fit for both the applicant and the dog. We do allow for 1-3 meet and greets to
6. Home visit, to ensure that the dog will be safe, healthy, and happy.
The breeds of shelter puppies are not known and can not be guaranteed, this is only a guess. We treat each dog as an individual, focusing on personality and behavior . Please visit the following site for more information: http://www.nationalcanineresearchcouncil.com/breed-identification-1/
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
